Its purpose is to increase stability of the shoulder joint.  Most people have terrible shoulder stability when performing pressing exercises and this exercise trains the lifter to stay extremely tight and stable through the shoulder joint and upper back while pressing.

so yea, like i thought at first, it would actually be pretty good right?

 Yes, it can actually be useful but shouldnt make up alot of the bulk of ones program.  You also have to be very careful with loading correctly  and make sure the spotter is paying attention.  The kid in the video is out of control, he is using way too heavy of a load for his ability, and the spotter is not paying attention so this demo sucks but the exercise has use.

Yeah I was talking to Nightfly that the exercise doesn't seem that bad afterall. I mean, even if some stuff looks funny, it may have it's uses. It's when people go over board with things like these that it's silly.

Yea, the video you posted was funny.  Kid had no business doing that and was lucky he didnt get hurt or hurt someone around him by losing control of the bar.  Thats the thing with more advanced techniques is beginners are the ones who jump up and implement them, leaving the basics behind. 
Relax.

good point.. heh

that trainer he has, probably has made him slower, less powerful, and overall worse athletically.. i can't imagine that he's gained any power, speed, or cutting ability.
